Best College Bar{re} in Town

We love so many things about the South Bend/Mishawaka/Granger area, but right at the top of the list is that it’s such a fabulous college town. Our local colleges and universities bring so much to our hometown: opportunities for lifelong learning, football Saturdays, beautiful campuses to explore, and–best of all–interesting people from all over the world who come here to work and study. Plenty of area college students have found their way through our doors over the years, and though they may only be here for a short time, these young women are a valuable part of the B Present community.

 

We love our local colleges and universities!

New Year, New You: B Present Group Wellness Coaching

Something about flipping the calendar to a brand new year makes all of us step back for a moment and re-evaluate where we are and where we want to be. (In northern Indiana in December, the literal answer to that question is “at the beach.” Always.)

Getting on track with diet, exercise, and overall health & lifestyle takes the perennial top spot on lists of New Year resolutions; it’s so common it’s practically a cliché. Also cliché? Falling off the wagon by March and having to make the same resolution again next year!

B Present Wellness Retreats: Your Ticket to Paradise

B Present Studio’s mission has always been to serve the whole you: mind, body, and spirit. Sometimes that means taking a respite from our day-to-day responsibilities and routines to reflect and recharge. It was with that in mind that the studio organized our very first wellness retreat to Costa Rica in January of 2016…

…and just a few weeks ago, our second wellness retreat of 2016 took us to the beautiful Red Mountain Resort in St. George, Utah. This award-winning resort property offered the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation: guided hiking and biking excursions, a huge variety of fitness classes, a full-service spa, swimming pools, gorgeous scenery, and three healthy (and seriously delicious) meals per day.

Meet the Barre Beauty: Lucy B.

If you’ve been hearing about B Present Studio for awhile now but have yet to try a class, you’re in good company: that’s exactly how Lucy’s journey started too. “I first heard about B Present through our neighbors and had always wanted to try it out, but I was always in golf season, or recovering from some type of surgery,” says Lucy, who was then a high school senior. But when her mom came home from her first class in February of 2016 raving about her newfound love for the barre, Lucy finally had to take the plunge. “I was determined to recover from my latest surgery and get cleared to try a class before I headed off to school!” And as any barre addict knows, trying “just one class” is usually only the beginning… Continue reading “Meet the Barre Beauty: Lucy B.”

Barre With Baby on Board

***Always speak with your doctor about beginning or continuing a fitness regimen while pregnant.***

A gaggle of geese.

A murder of crows.

A colony of penguins.

A pride of lions.

We’re not sure what the right collective noun is for a large group of pregnant women, but whatever it is…we’ve got that. Something must be in the Granger water, because as of late we’ve seen one expectant mama after another sashay through the doors here at B Present–and we love seeing so many baby bumps at the barre!

2015 Year in Review

As 2015 winds down, we can’t help but marvel at what a ride it’s been at B Present Studio. It’s hard to believe that at this time last year, our team and our studio were about half the size that they are today. The new year brings with it a chance for both reinvigoration and reflection; as we look ahead to all the promise that 2016 holds, we also look back in gratitude for all that 2015 had to offer: Continue reading “2015 Year in Review”

Barre Beauty Stories: March 2015

Check out Stefanie Foster’s barre story, featured in our March 2015 newsletter:

“I remember taking my first class at B Present Studio with Tammy thinking “well, if this workout doesn’t change my body, nothing will”.  That was in July of 2013 and I can honestly say today that I am in the best shape of my life and the smallest I have been in over 20 years.  I have done so many other workouts and nothing compares to Tammy’s method.  In addition to the workouts, I love the fact that the atmosphere at the studio is so welcoming and supportive of each other.  Tammy, I hope you know how special B Present Studio is and what you and all the “barre-tenders” have done for me and so many others.

Barre Beauty Stories: January 2015

 Check out Heather Short’s barre story, featured in our January 2015 newsletter:

 

“The first time I attended barre was in Tammy’s basement for a fundraiser. At that point I was working out pretty consistently at a local gym (multiple aerobic classes and spinning), so I thought I would be ready for this workout.

Not. Even. Close.


I had no idea how challenging the class would be and felt like I was a newcomer to group exercise. The funny thing about it was that even though I felt like a complete novice… I totally loved it! Fast forward to today. There are still workouts when I feel like I am a complete novice, but each time I come I know I grow stronger…yet there are still a million ways that I know I can improve.
